Spurs player ratings from 4-0 QPR win - Lamela & Chadli come good, Dier stars again

Erik Lamela

Tottenham put in a fantastic performance to beat London rivals QPR 4-0, with Nacer Chadli netting a double, and Dier and Adebayor also scoring.

Hugo Lloris 7/10 - Not so much to do for the Frenchman early on, though he did make a couple of smart punches. One fairly comfortable save from Bobby Zamora was his only shot on target.

Eric Dier 8.5/10 - The hero from last week looked more than comfortable on the right hand side, happy to come forward and able to put in a couple of decent crosses. Wonderful diving header to score his second goal in consecutive Premier League games. Barely put a foot wrong.

Younes Kaboul 7/10 - Kaboul was unable to hang onto Matty Phillips in an early chance to equalise, with the winger leaving the former Portsmouth man on the ground before blazing over. Relatively untroubled for the rest of the game.

Jan Vertonghen 8/10 - The ex Ajax man put in some great challenges and also managed to advance with the ball on more than one occasion. A really strong performance.

Danny Rose 7.5/10 - Rose again looked powerful and confident down the left, managing to put in several crosses as he had very little defending to do. Looks to have improved greatly already under Pochettino. Crossed for Adebayor to score the game's final goal.

Etienne Capoue 7.5/10 - The base in midfield for Spurs to play off, helped the home side completely overawe QPR in the middle of the park, and early on did some strong work to take the ball from the defence and begin attacks.

Nabil Bentaleb 7/10 - Brought the ball forward quickly to help set up the Chadli’s early strike. Was spreading passes really well as Spurs were allowed plenty of possession. Withdrawn with half an hour to go to give Dembele a run out.

Christian Eriksen 8.5/10 - He and Bentaleb did well to dispossess Remy in the middle of the park ahead of Chadli’s first goal. Hit the underside of the bar with a wonderful 30 yard free kick. Came alive as the first half went on with several pieces of wonderful control, and was one of the top players in the second half.

Nacer Chadli 8.5/10 - The Belgian was preferred to Aaron Lennon, and proved that decision right by drifting in the middle to skilfully collect Adebayor’s cross and dink it over Rob Green. Also nodded in Lamela’s wonderful cross to double his tally. His aerial threat and willingness to take up a central attacking role make him an interesting option. Big performance.

Erik Lamela MOTM 8.5/10 - Made a really bright start indicating the Argentine meant business. Provided the corner for Dier’s goal. If anything the former Roma man improved as the game went on, and his wonderful skill and cross for Chadli’s second goal would have certainly got Spurs fans excited. Some great dribbling skills and passing throughout and was even breaking up opposition play. Undoubtedly his best minutes in the Premier League.

Emmanuel Adebayor 8/10 - Missed a header early on after a good Spurs break, but then turned provider with a great cross for Chadli. Had another effort that was deflected wide, but finally got his goal in a decent second half spell, finishing past Rob Green from Chadli’s cross.

Substitutes:

Mousa Dembele (Bentaleb 59’) 6.5/10 - Came on as a slightly more robust central midfielder, and did well both coming forward and making challenges.

Harry Kane (Chadli 6/10 69’) - Was given a little over 20 minutes on the pitch but wasn’t really able to get many goalscoring chances.

Roberto Soldado (Adebayor 80’) 6/10 - On for the last 10 minutes and was full of desire and running.

Who did you think was the brightest star for Spurs?
